Default firewire networking

me and a friend have connected our computers by a firewire cable. he needs to take a file from my computer but we can't figure out how to get into the shared documents folder (where the file is) from his computer. file sharing is enabled and we did get a game working using this networking method. how can he browse the shared folders in my computer from his?

nah, we're just directly connected, something is messed with his ethernet port so we didn't bother trying to get him on my LAN.

i'll have to try that. we were both assigned different workgroups for some reason but we can't see eachothers under "entire network". but adding that folder might help, i don't really know.
